Moore’s Law Has Replaced The Gold Standard

By George Smith – Re-Blogged From Gold Eagle

I collect gold in the form of important insights, and in this article I’d like to share some of them with you.

Until a few years ago I never thought of Moore’s Law and a gold coin standard as having an important connection, but they do.  Gary North lays it out (8/17):

The gold standard was an institutional restraint on the expansion of government spending, and central banks were designed to thwart the gold standard. We live in an era of the triumph of central banking. We therefore live in an era of the comprehensive defeat of gold coins as restraining factors on the expansion of the government.

Venezuelan Socialists On Track to Eliminate Their Nation’s Oil Industry

By Eric Worrall – Re-Blogged From WUWT

Despite oil accounting for a whopping 90% of Venezuela’s export earnings, President Maduro, a fervent supporter of the Paris Agreement, has courageously put principle before profits by implementing his version of a new green deal. Maduro has eliminated the capitalist exploiters from his nation’s oil industry, and replaced them with loyal army officers who are rapidly dismantling the infrastructure left behind by the capitalists.

Soldiers are taking over Venezuela’s oil industry, and the country with the world’s biggest oil reserves is falling further behind

The Green Climate Deal

By Willis Eschenbach – Re-Blogged From WUWT

I see that Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Mr. Bernie Sanders are pushing something called a “Green New Deal”, so I thought I’d take a look. The Hill has a piece entitled Progressives say dire climate reports point to need for ‘Green New Deal’,  and the Atlantic magazine has an article on it headlined The Democratic Party Wants to Make Climate Policy Exciting. Make climate policy exciting? Well, I guess so, but only if you consider economic suicide exciting …

The Real Story of Thanksgiving

By The Common Constitutionalist – Re-Blogged From iPatriot

Every year around this time, most schoolchildren hear the same ol’ Thanksgiving story in their classrooms across the nation. That so-called official story is a heartwarming tale of how the Pilgrims and Native Americans shared a bountiful feast together. But it does not tell the full truth about what really happened on the Plymouth Plantation.

We’re told that the Pilgrims struggled for their survival when they landed in present-day Massachusetts in the 1620’s. Half of the Pilgrims starved to death or went back to England during the first year alone because of harsh winter weather and their lack of proper farming skills. Their chronic food shortages were ultimately resolved when the Native Americans taught the Pilgrims how to plant corn the following spring and together they celebrated their blessings with a huge feast.

Vision

By Leronard E ead – Re-Blogged From FEE

Where there is no vision, the people perish.

—PROVERBS 29:18

Vision is the blessing of foresight, but it has no chance of realization without its companion blessing, insight. In the absence of these twin attainments—each within our reach—the people perish, that is, they vegetate rather than germinate, stagnate instead of growing in awareness, perception, consciousness. Vision, therefore—the power of penetrating to reality by mental acuteness—must be developed if our role in human destiny is to be fulfilled.

Methods and Tricks Used to Create and Perpetuate the Human-caused Global Warming Deception

By Dr. Tim Ball – Re-Blogged From WUWT

These opening comments will trigger knee-jerk responses from proponents of the human-caused global warming deception. Just saying President Trump is sufficient to trigger them. However, when I add that he handled the Lesley Stahl CBS interview well, the comments will appear without them reading any further. Poke them, and they blindly respond triggered by the tunnel-vision of political ideology and the source of their funding.

Professor Calls Out College Administrators for Overwhelming Liberal Bias

Re-Blogged From Total Conservative

You don’t really expect to see a college professor calling out college administrators for their liberal bias, and you really don’t expect to see them do it in the pages of The New York Times, but hey, the Gray Lady throws us a bone every now and then. On Tuesday, Professor Samuel J. Abrams of Sarah Lawrence College argued that while there was no question that professors and academics tended to be on the more liberal side of the spectrum, the imbalance was nothing compared to school administrators, who are practically walking in lockstep towards a more “progressive” future.
